Description James Bowes 2008-05-15 08:12:25 EDT
For a large package that already exists on the server, RHN will reply saying
that the package already exists, but the client will continue to push the
package up. If the upload finishes before the server closes the connection, then
the client can read the return code. If not, then the client will get a pipe
error or peer closed the connection error. The fix for this is to not do any
processing on the package until it is fully uploaded, so we don't return a
result until the client is ready.

Testing this is pretty easy:
 * Find a really big rpm that isn't already in RHN (openoffice.org-base from
rawhide is a good choice)
  * run rhn-pkgupload to upload this package to rhn
    This should work
  * now, run it again
    the rpm should transfer, then you should see a message saying the package   
    already exists.
    before, the transfer would timeout midway, and you'd get a traceback.

jbowes-- I get a package to upload-- it returns with Ok but when I upload it
again the log says it finds it already exists but then just hangs
